Hello, I am Randall. Can you add more information? do you need dipstick locations? or something else. I am just trying to gather and fully understand what you are asking for. Do you have the owners manual?

I have the owners manual. I'm leaking something when my car is parked in the garage. It seems to be watery instead of oily, but I'd like to be sure and check the motor oil, brake fluid, transmission fluid, and whatever else can be easily checked.
So, I guess it is dipstick locations I'm after. And, if there's any special way to properly check them. Like, I know to check the transmission fluid it can be done with the engine just started up, in a "cold" state. But, it's better if it's done after the motor has been running a bit, while it's in a "hot" state.

Any idea what fluid would be leaking from the passengers side front of the car that is a yellow tint color?
